Morning from Hakuba.

Don't like using the word wet, but we have just a thin bit of wet snow on the ground this morning in places - though it's better than just rain I suppose. Did look like it was trying to snow last night but obviously didn't turn into much in the end.

Lots of 'gas' and cloud around this morning, but some blue sky as well. Bit of sun as well and mild conditions. We're forecast snow though and expecting potentially decent amounts of fresh snowfall over today and tomorrow. That would be good.

There has been a fairly strong wind early morning but it doesn't seem to be affecting resort openings at all.

New snow please!
